“Mercy Buckets” is French for Thank You

11 05 2012

Hey gang, just a quick post to thank you all for two milestones that fell upon my blog this week.

First off, yesterday my follower tally tipped the 500 mark! In fact, as I write this I think I have 507 followers. This rapid assent has wildly exceeded my expectations. When I started this blog last November I thought it would be a lot like cracking wise alone in the dark, and for a short time it was, but then a few of you found me pretty early on. I don’t know if you loyal followers have been paying people to visit my blog or what, but my readership (and comments) have been growing steadily. Thank you very, very much! I know your time is valuable, so I truly appreciate you giving me a little of it every time you read and comment on my blog.

Second, as I mentioned in Monday’s blog post, last week my blog was approved to be on TopMommyBlogs.com. TMB has over 4,500 blogs posted on their website, and they keep track of the traffic those blogs generate. It’s a great way to increase visibility for your blog, as well as boost your SEO. Well, as of Monday my blog wasn’t even ranked. (I believe you have to be in the top 1,000 before TMB will even pay attention to where you stand in terms of popularity on their website.) But by Tuesday I was ranked 850, and all week my blog has steadily climbed and today “From Nonsense to Momsense” is ranked #109 on the TMB website. Wow! Again, I have you all to thank! I’m so grateful to you for clicking on that TMB banner at the end of each of my blog posts. Even though it takes just a second I know you don’t have to do it, but I sincerely appreciate it when you do. It really helps!

I can honestly say I have the best followers in the world. I’m glad you guys like to laugh and have fun. I’ll keep the amusing blog posts coming, as long as you keep coming back.

Thanks again!

“Soon” isn’t a time, just like “someday” ain’t a date. WHEN?

So happy for you, Stacy! I’m impressed that you have climbed up the ladder so quickly. I always look forward to reading your blog, and I’m so happy to see it show up in my inbox. You keep them coming and I’ll keep reading. Oh yes, one more thing…. you do a fantastic job on commenting back to folks, and commenting on my blog… I bet that carries a lot of weight with folks… just sayin’ !

Thank you, Carol. You’re one of those “charter” supporters I fondly spoke about in this post. I appreciate your enthusiasm for my writing so much! And yes, I do love reading other people’s blogs and commenting on them, because I learn a lot about what makes other people tick, PLUS it’s always interesting to see how they run “their show” in terms of their blog.

Thanks for sticking with me! I hope we continue to enjoy and comment on each other’s blogs for a long time to come. 🙂
